CITIES FOR ACTION DENOUNCES PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS FOR PASSING TAX BILL

Cities for Action: Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will hurt immigrant and mixed-status families

By signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the President has doubled down on his position that children from working class families are less important to him than the ultra-wealthy. This tax bill hurts cities across the country, and takes special aim at immigrant and mixed-status families by denying the Child Tax Credit for many children. We denounce the President for supporting this bill and those in Congress who voted to jeopardize the well-being of families across the nation. We won't let up from fighting against actions like these that target our most vulnerable residents.
